1000 books before kindergarten

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. that's 730 in 2 years, and 1,095 in 3 years. The library would like to help you get started! Pick up a 1000 books packet from us and use the included sheets to keep track of book that you read to your child. After every 25 books bring your sheet into the library and choose a new book to add to your home collection. You will keep receiving prizes until you reach 300 books. At that point, you will have built up such great reading habits, that will have no problem continuing the program!
